The highly industrialized world of today has done amazing things in terms of industry, innovation, and growth, but on occasion, this is unfortunately at the cost of health and safety. People and workers are constantly being exposed to more dangerous chemicals, pathogens, and agents than ever before, and it’s having detrimental effects on our health.
Usually, this happens to workers on a job site but can happen to anyone. Construction sites and building demolitions often send particles through the air, and continued exposure to these can cause serious issues. If you work in the construction industry, you need to make sure that your employer has all of the proper safety procedures and equipment in place to keep everyone safe.
One of the main areas of exposure that we deal with as a law firm is with asbestos, and all of the medical conditions that go along with it, such as mesothelioma, lung cancer, nonmalignant lung and pleural disorders.
If you or someone you love has had prolonged exposure to asbestos in building or construction material, then you need to give us a call to find out what your options are.
There are many other different types of chemical exposures that can be devastating to you or your family’s health, including but not limited to:
Household contaminants – mold, fungus, toxic chemicals
Gas, Oil or Radon Exposure
Toxic radiation during medical treatments
Industrial chemicals or solvents
Again, if you or someone you love has been exposed to any of these, you need to know what your options are.
